REMEMBERING

Lauren J. Tuohino

Dear Dad, I want to express my thoughts now that it is 2 days since your Memorial and Celebration of Your Life. You have been gone from our world for almost 2 1/2 months, and I still feel such a sense of peace and comfort that you are with our Lord Jesus Christ. I thank Him over and over for this. Even though in the last 10 years there have been real difficult times in caring for you, and so hard to see the long slow decline in your mind, I was always glad that I had 1 more day with my Dad...difficult or blessed. I am remembering all the conversations we had late into the evenings when I started staying over night with you. Our many discussions about God, watching Fox News and talking about the disturbing events going on in the world. Remembering Mom, her love and kindness, and shedding tears together as we were coming to acceptance that she was gone. You said, "Time Marches on, it waits for no one." Also your thankfulness for a home cooked meal. I'm sure it wasn't as good as mom's cooking! During the days and late afternoons we worked on your yard, clipping Mom's roses, digging out problem plants and trees and planting low maintenance plants and shrubs. Almost every afternoon you would rake or pick up magnolia tree leaves that would collect in your yard and you didn't have a magnolia tree. The hours we spent weeding your planters, talking about weeds over and over and why weeds? One more day with my dad I would say to myself as I was driving home crying, sometimes ranting and raving to my sister-in-law and husband about how this was so hard, sometimes quiet, and sometimes rejoicing and grateful that it had been a good day. Dad I shed many tears of sadness and frustration over your Alzheimer's decline, but I learned to laugh out loud at the quirky, gross, mysterious, unbelievable things that happened over the past 10 years. Laugh or Cry? Both are necessary. I admire your acceptance of this disease. I did my best. I have no regrets. I Love You Dad!
